I did it!!
After lurking for several months, reading a lot of posts, and watching Shug's videos I finally jumped in. Today I purchased a WBBB 1.1 DL and a BMJ tarp. I also purchased a Gossamer Gear 1/4" pad. I am a backpacker and I hope this new purchase will make the backpacking experience even better. Thanks all for sharing your knowledge on this forum. I hope I made the right decision.
And the wait begins...
